Elevate women’s voices. If you’re scouting a big alpine line with a group and your female partner thinks you should drop it and has good reasons but no one seems to hear her input? All it takes is a, “Hey - Julia has a good point” to bring her idea front and center. When a woman calls out a group for ignoring her voice, she is often seen as aggressive or obnoxious. When you elevate a woman’s voice, you’re seen as a team player concerned with all the opinions involved. Point being - you have everything to gain and she often has a lot to lose. Speak up.
